Windows parental controls have the capacity to control when a user, such as your child, may use the computer. The time limits feature, when set up properly, will prevent your child from using the computer at the times you specify. If the child attempts to log on before the set time, Windows will prevent him from logging on. If he remains on the computer after the set time ends, the system will log off his account.

However, your children can still find their ways to bypass the parent control time limits. Here we’ll show you one method that kids use to bypass the parental control time limits in Windows 7/Vista/XP.
